I loved everything about his black- and- white- TV self!
I loved Mr. Green Jeans, Mr. Mooses (lots of Misters), and especially Bunny who never missed an episode of plotting "the ping pong ball drop" on the Captain's head. It was never "if" Bunny would do this thing, but how and when.
Nothing was funnier in 1963.
From right to left: Captain Kangaroo, Bunny, Mr. Green Jeans, Mr. Moose... but who and what is that that costumed character? I don't remember him at all. Is he a bear? What is his name?
In today's world, consumer's would just buy a phone just like the Captain's. "Bunny" puppets would be available for purchase. Everyone could have their own Captain's uniform!
My Very Own Captain Kangaroo Phone!
It is now "For Sale". This is serious business!!!
I am serious about selling my childhood.
I am serious about the de-cluttering process.
I am serious about buying my new bicycle.
P.S. Please pray for Mrs. Beasley. She is doing better than expected on Ebay.
